About Tom Hall Photography

Thank you very much for visiting my website. I love what I do, feel honoured every day to be able to have such a great job and thoroughly enjoy the fact that so many people support me and have followed my journey for so long! I feel truly blessed!

When I was 17 my mum bought me a camera and my interest in photography began. I was intrigued by the fact that a black box and some glass at the front could capture a moment and end up on a piece of paper. It fascinated me! What became even more of a fascination to me is how the love for a photograph never stops growing and becomes more and more personally valuable as the years pass.

At the same time I was also building a real passion for music and eventually it took my more and more of my attention away from photography.
For years I focussed on being a singer (no pun intended), but eventually the old dream of being a successful photographer resurfaced.

I built a studio, registered Tom Hall Photography, and photographed many portrait and beauty sessions. As soon as I felt ready I eventually took on the responsibility of photographing weddings. From there I haven’t looked back!

So Far

Over the last 10 years of photographing weddings I’ve seen so many wonderful moments, learnt a lot about the art, and grown to understand more about myself as well. I’ve snagged some wonderful accolades and gained my associate honours in photography. I feel like I’m exactly where I should be and hope this privilege lasts until I can pick up a camera no more.

I understand you have many, many photographers out there to choose from and I can fully relate to the fact that it’s not an easy task. At the end of the day it comes down to asking yourself one question: “Can I imagine myself in Tom Hall’s photos?”. If the answer is “Yes!” I hope you’ll take the time to contact me and hopefully I’ll be available to photograph your very special day.

 I absolutely love weddings and this is why it’s always a privilege for me to be invited to capture such a pivotal day in anyone’s life – wherever it is.

FAQ:

Q. Can I book you for less than 12 hours? 
A. I photograph 12 hours because a wedding day is exactly that; a day. There's just too much magic that happens to feel comfortable only photographing a part of. If ever there was a whole day in your life to be photographed, it's most definitely a wedding.  

Q. Do you do videography?
A. I only specialise in photography. Videography is a completely different craft requiring a completely different mindset. I would always recommend booking a photographer and videographer separately to ensure each element has the full attention of it's artist apposed to someone doing a bit of both. 

Q. How far in advance should I book? 
A. As soon as you can. I operate on a first-in first-served basis. Once someone books me that date is no longer available to anyone else. To ensure no one else beats you to the date, it's recommended you book as soon as you can. 

Q. Do I need to book my venue first?
A. Yes. This is very important. The venue must be booked first before the processing of a booking with me can commence. 

Q. Will we chat before the wedding?
A. Absolutely! We must make time to speak prior to the wedding day. It's so important to get to know each other so that on the wedding day you are so much more comfortable with being photographed. This will result in much more natural looking wedding photography. Some clients like to meet in person while others prefer to talk about their wedding via Video chat. Either option is just great. 

Q. Do you have an assistant? 
A. I've never needed one. Even though I photograph the wedding day by myself I've always been able to photograph both bride and groom preps as well as all the other events of the day. Shooting my myself also ensures that the intimate moments you share with each other don't feel like a spectacle. For me it's important that even though the photography is an important part of the day, there's still as little intrusion on my part as possible.

Q. What if you haven't photographed my venue before?
A. Awesome! I love new spaces and I love new angles. I love exploring and discovery. This is another thing that excites me about photography. I won so many awards from images captured in locations I've never been to before. 

Q. Are you insured for public liability?
A. Yes $10,000,000

Q. Are you accredited?
A. Yes. I am a fully accredited photographer with Master honours.

A creative genius with an ability to capture a person's inner beauty...I have enjoyed working with Tom on numerous occasions and couldn't have been happier with his images. Working in media, I meet and work with lots of photographers but Tommy is not just artistically talented, he has an eye for finding you at your best and his personality and people skills allows him to bring the best out in you. This is a huge factor! You can have all the beautiful makeup and lighting in the world but if you are not your most comfortable best self, it shows. I rely on Tom for all of my head shots and portrait shoots because not only is his work divine!! I know that no matter what mood I'm in, what's happened in my day... He will find a way to make my laugh, feel relaxed and for my best to shine through. This is a gift you can't learn at any photography school ... Amanda Jason - Channel 10

I stumbled apon your website when I was looking for wedding photos for my assignment at school. I immediately fell in love. Your photos are amazing Tom and I aspire to be like you one day. I also hope that when I do get married one day, that you will be the one who captures it.

My husband and I were married on the 21st september 2012 and we had no idea who we were going to ask to shoot our day! Our celebrant (Lynette Maguire) recommended Tom Hall Photography and said we would love his work. Tom arrived on the day with an absolute calmness and relaxation about him which really did rub off and made me feel a little calmer. Once he started photographing we didn't even notice that he was in the room! It poured rain on our day so after the ceremony we went into hectic mode trying to get hair redone etc and Tom was very relaxed and patient! To add to our eventful day our limo forgot about us so Tom was kind enough to cheuffer us around for the afternoon. We finally got around to going out to do our photo's and Tom took us to a magical spot and got some amazing shots! It was great to have someone who is really passionate about what they do. We had an awesome time getting our photos done and having such a great photogapher really contributed to that. A lot of our guests have commented on what a friendly guy Tom was on the night and have said that they will be lining him up for their big day....when it finally happens!! Tom, you truely are a great artist, your work is amazing and we are so glad we asked you to be part of our day!! We can't wait to see the rest of our piccys! Kirra & Dale =)

My wife Kimberley and I came to Brisbane from Adelaide for our wedding and found Tom online. After about 30 seconds on the phone I was convinced he was the one we wanted capturing our day. Our initial meeting felt like we had known Tom for years and he was fantastic during the night of our wedding and reception. I can't remeber enjoying having my photo taken s much. When we first received digital copies of our photo's I was amazed at how good they were, when we received our prints I was simply blown away. He is an amazing artist and a hell of a nice guy to boot. With Tom we didn't just get a photographer but someone we're proud to call a friend. Cheers mate.

This is so true Tom. I actually didn't notice your presence until you said that you're done. I mean you were able to capture our special moments naturally, you're like no other. I commend you for your great expertise!
